Beading at the Bee
Jacquard . For the lizard pictured above, I emphasized his horns and the most prominent dark markings on his body with brown or amber beads; for the characteristic white stripe down his back, of course I used white beads. I didn't bead the large mark beside one of the horns, however, as then the horn wouldn't have shown up well. I used a single bead for the eye. I plan to turn this into a framed picture for the man whose image this is--an image I got from Google images. I'll perhaps add some hand embroidery and then I'll frame it either simply with fabric strips or perhaps with some small, simple quilt blocks. Because this image cuts off his tail, I will likely extend his tail into the borders with some additional beads. I think the beading on this picture shows improvement in my beading-on-fabric ability, compared to the first one I did!
